This may be a bit silly question. But for a  person new to computer may find this difficult. We are used to click on “My computer icon” on the Desktop to access our C:, D: or any other drives. But if you have just formatted and installed a fresh copy of windows 7 or windows 8, then you may not see “My Computer” icon on the desktop and you may be wondering how can I get it back. No worries it’s very simple task.

Right click on the desktop area

Select “Personalize“.

You will get a windows like below.

Click on “Change Desktop icon“.

Then you will get another windows where you can put a tick mark on whichever icons you want to bring back on the desktop “Computer“, “Network” etc.

That’s it very easy.
